I can tell most on day 3 but don't discard until day 10, just in case

i usually candle at day 4 or 5 then again at day 10 or 11 just to be sure. i candled some eggs a few weeks ago and thought some of them were not viable. i just didn't give up and didn't see a thing until day 13. late starters i guess.

i totally agree. i have some maran eggs that it is impossible to candle. just have to wait and hope for the best and make sure they don't start smelling.

Quote:yes, good marans are VERY difficult to see even with a great candler, just hope you don't get a cold
